At rally in Virginia, Obama just called Romney's forgetting about his past positions "Romnesia"—

Addressing a giddy audience of sycophants this afternoon at George Mason University, President Obama decided to follow in Richard Lewis’ illustrious footsteps. He’s evidently still flying high after his comedic stylings at last night’s Alfred Smith Dinner, so why not give his fans another glimpse of the ol’ funnybone?
That’s a pretty good reason why not. Unable and unwilling to confront his own shady past and abysmal record as president, ignoring his own history of making promises he can’t keep and reversing positions to score political points, Obama instead projected his own failings onto Mitt Romney. Pathetic.
Pot, meet kettle.
To carry out his deflection, Obama attempted a riff on Jeff Foxworthy’s “You might be a redneck…” routine:
Hilarity did not ensue:
Feeling inspired, his fans followed suit:
Liberals thought “Romnesia” was just about the most wonderful thing they’d ever seen:
Actually, that is the funniest thing to come out of Romnesia-palooza. Obama has had the lapdog media on his leash since before he won the presidency. This “real reporter” even took the time to confirm the spelling of his master’s new term:
Conservatives were not amused by the president’s foray into stand-up, and they sharply pointed out his hypocrisy:
Yep. President Obama is the king of shooting first and asking questions later.
And they returned fire with a hashtag of their own: #Obamnesia.
Not for long.
